There’s a reason why some of the best athletes on the planet head to Tenerife in their off-season. With its multitude of different terrains – from coastal lowlands and verdant rainforests to precipitous hills and a volcano at its centre – as well as year-round sunshine, the largest Canary island provides the perfect warm-weather training base for elite cyclists, runners, you name it. And if you’re pushing yourself to your absolute limits, then why not do it with epic tropical views to motivate you? 

It’s all of these natural attributes that make the Route Active Hotel such a boon for anyone seeking to enjoy an energetic holiday – and not just professional sportsmen. Located in the north of the island, overlooking the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean, close to the protected area of the Rambla de Castro, it’s perfectly situated for surfing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, scuba diving and even paragliding – all activities that are available at the hotel for guests to try out. 

Is there a better way to recover from a high-octane day out than in a poolside hammock?

Of course, after a gruelling outdoor session in the water or the nearby hills, you’ll want to recline in comfort and luxury – and the Route Active comes up trumps there too with its modern, minimalist design and fantastically appointed rooms. Refuel with some healthy, delicious food in the restaurant, then take it easy by the sizeable pool, swinging in a hammock. You might then choose to enjoy a massage or a session with the in-house physiotherapist. Or – if you’re a glutton for punishment – head to the fully equipped gym for a proper warm-down session. Whatever adventure you’re seeking, you can find it here.
